ASUU Gives Federal Government July 2017 Ultimatum

The National President of the union, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, stated this during a news conference at the University of Abuja yesterday where he said the Federal Government is owing academics in federal universities unpaid allowances of not less than N128 billion.

“In view of this, the union rose from its NEC meeting at the Bayero University Kano observing that the particular issue of EAA cannot be meaningfully addressed unless within an agreed framework. Hence the National Executive Council (NEC) of ASUU resolved that all outstanding arrears of EAA should be paid not later than July 2017.

“The decision of ASUU-NEC on the issue has since been communicated to the Minister of Education, Senate President and the Chairman, Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund,’’ he said.
